Words from our local Seneschals

                                                                                                            For the month of: January 2017

Aarquelle                                                                           Seneschal: Syr Gerwyn y Teigr

It has been a great month for Aarquelle; it has been announced that Their Royal Majesties are supporting the advancement to Barony from Shire.  We are now working feverishly on all that entails.  Our officers are determining any new requirements for their offices as we transition.

We held out annual Viking Vntr Vunderlandt event, and had over 100 in attendance.  Her Royal Majesty came and received our petition for advancement at that event. 

Upcoming events:

                  18 February ~ As You Like It (Salida)

8 April ~ Kingdom Arts & Sciences Collegium (Salida)
29 April ~ Aarquelle Newcomers & Investiture (Pueblo)
14-16 July ~ Highlands Rapier Camp and War Collegium (Buena Vista)

Al’Barran                                                                           Seneschal: Ymanya Murray

Al-Barran is well into preparations for war.  The January populace meeting was well attended, and the February populace meeting will be held earlier in the month than usual, to allow for final planning before folks leave for war.  At this meeting, Mistress Melodia will take the office of Seneschal. 

Upcoming events:

                  29 April ~ Albuquerque Renaissance Faire (demo)

Blackwater Keep                                                  Seneschal: Devon Nightshade

Blackwater keep continues to hold monthly general meetings, along with twice monthly A&S and fighter practices; however, the weather has prevented archery practice. 

We will be holding an event on 15 April, where we plan to have classes on various topics, and do some fighting.  We intend to support the ENMU production of “Pirates of Pinzance,” by purchasing advertising.

Upcoming events:

                  15 April ~ Blackwater Keep Collegium and Defender

Blaiddwyn                                                                        Seneschal:

Blaiddwyn is on winter hiatus


Bryngalou                                                                                          Seneschal: Kveldulfr Valbrandsson

The group is working well, and are happy.  Our St. Brigid Day event went well, the Queen gracing us.  Several pieces of Shire garb were needed and several awards given out to Shire members by Her Majesty.  Best of all, a profit was made!

We have a consistent average number of fighters at practice, with no injuries!  We have bi-weekly A&S classes, starting in February, with specific topics and open sewing nights.  We are now looking ahead to WAR, and our May Day event, planned for the second weekend in May.

SPOTLIGHT:  Thanks to Terri, for bringing snacks to the last meeting!

Upcoming events:

                  May ~ May Day

Caer Galen                                                                       Seneschal: Keridwen Andersdottir

                  28-30 July ~ Enduro

Caerthe                                                                                 Seneschal: Gauvain Eisenbein

Preparations for WAR are well underway.  Caerthe has volunteered to take the 8 PM to Midnight shift on Friday at Estella War.  We will be holding an A&S get together at Kovac and Estefania's House in Englewood on the 2nd and 4th Friday of the month.

Upcoming events:

                  25 March ~ Newcomer’s Collegium        
                  26-29 May ~ Condorrieri

Draca Mor                                                                                 Seneschal: Saeunn Hrafndottir

The shire continues to plan for events later in the year, securing a site for Summer Tournament and Games (STAG) event.  The Mor You Know has been shifted back to the fall of 2017, with a tentative site arranged. 

The Fabulous Fiber Babes will be participating in the Sneffels Fiber Fair in September, teaching various fiber arts, and Egil Thorsen will be participating in the Viking Exhibit at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.

Shire Gatherings (practice and A&S) will begin again in March, when the weather is more cooperative.  Our Thrown Weapons Marshal, Baroness Annis, is researching the equipment needed to begin thrown weapons practice once the weather stabilizes.

Upcoming events:

                  Fall 2017 ~ The Mor You Know

Dragonsspine                                                            Seneschal: Mary of Lyonshall

  Dragonsspine is doing well – despite the plague of illness and surgeries beset upon our great populace.  Despite it all, fighter practice is well attended, and there is a feeling of camaraderie among the Barony, as we move ahead with new events… and WAR! 

I am pleased with the success of the events to date.  Candlemas was a great success, with 171 people attending; everything went seamlessly.  WE did one demo, and were well received.   We have open bids for Champions, expected to be in June. 

Upcoming events:

                  1 April ~ Carnival of Venice
                  6 May 2017 ~ Coronation
                  4 November ~ Holiday Bazaar

Drygestan                                                                                           Seneschal: Christine Woyade

Drygestan is moving forward to put on several events, including Drystone III and St. Martin's Collegium. We will have a financial committee meeting the second Wednesday in February during our A&S meeting, where we will approve budgets for these events and Ren Faire. We hope to have a new Knight Marshall this month; we have 2 good candidates to choose from, so that we can continue to have regular A&S and Fighter Practice. We look forward to Estrella War, where we will be camping as a Shire.

Upcoming events:

                  15-18 September ~ Santa Fe Renaissance Faire (demo)

Fontaine dans Sable                                       Seneschal: Adriana Lopes de Rodas

January was a typically busy month, with weekly meetings at our Medieval Muster; including fighter practice, A&S, bardic children’s activities and/or chatelaine projects.  The Barony is creating a new list field, using pennants painted with the personal, household and Baronial devices and badges.  Weather, both low temperatures and muddy fields and roads have hampered archery practice.

Fontaine’s 12th Night was held, with court dancing a silent auction, children’s scavenger hunt, a wonderful Court and an amazing feast.  Many members of the barony, and Shire-folk in Rio, received Baronial awards, and were recognized by His Majesty with Kingdom awards.

Two letters were accepted by The Crown, and the Barony will be moving forward with Polling and Investiture in the coming months.  A Town Hall meeting with Q&A is scheduled for 17 February, which will be recorded and available to watch online.  Polling will occur Sunday of Crown Tournament, during the Princess Protector Tournament.



Upcoming events:

11 March 2017 ~ Crown Tournament & Baronial Polling
22 April 2017 ~ Sworded Affaire & Baronial Investiture

Gleann Medonach                                              Seneschal: Michaela Kunrat

The group has been quiet, nothing to report.


Hawk’s Hollow                                                         Seneschal: Grellan O'Conchobhair

We have been active in several areas.  Lord Marcus hosted a largesse / leatherworking workshop to generate simple pouches.  Future largesse workshops were discussed to continue to “feed the need” for A&S and largesse.  Everyone was looking forward to Tri-Baronial A&S competition.  Archery is still going strong.  We are looking forward to Estrella.

Upcoming events:

                  6 August ~ St Sebastian’s Archery Tournament

Hinterland                                                                       Seneschal: Rowan

The group has been quiet, nothing to report.


Nahrun Kabirun                                                    Seneschal: Heinric Von Drachenburg

 We are all busily preparing for Estrella, ready to show up in force.  Fighter practices continue twice per week, are heavily attended, as are weekly A&S meetings and Friday armor workshops.

We are in full preparation mode for Siege of the City, and held a fighter practice on the site last month, that was a blast.  Coronation planning is also well underway, and we are beginning to plan for Clan Wars again in Ruidoso, NM.

My replacement has been selected, and approved.  The goal is for him to take the office on 1 March, and I will continue in an advisory role as long as I am able. 

Upcoming events:

31 March2017 ~ Siege of the City (City of Rocks state park)
20 May ~ Masked Ball
11-12 November 2017 ~ Coronation

Plattefordham                                                           Seneschal: Zvir L’vov syn Gorin

The last month, we celebrated our Candlemas event with the King.  Our members received numerous awards from His Majesty during His visit.  The event went very well, and thanks to all who participated in the A&S auction, we were able to raise $714.0 to the travel fund.  We were also able to gain two new members due to the event. We are continuing our plans for Norther Realms War and Dragons.  We are looking into getting a fighter practice in Glenrock once per month, to facilitate more involvement from the members that we have in Douglas.  We are putting up fliers at the local college, and possibly putting together a demo. 

We will be having a cheese making class in February, and future classes of lampworking (making glass beads) silk banner painting and sourdough bread from a 150 year old starter.  Fighter practices are going well, gaining heavy and light fighters.  We are tentatively planning a 3 kingdom joint fighter practice with Northshield and Artemisia in April or May. 

Upcoming events:

                  June 2017 ~ Northern Realms War
                  21-23 July 2017 ~ Here There be Dragons

Ram’s Keep                                                                    Seneschal:

The group is dormant


Ravenhyrst                                                                     Seneschal: Anrique de Braga

Our group continues to support the Barony of Caerthe, as best we are able.


Rio de las Animas                                               Seneschal: Geua filia Guy

January saw no action in Rio because of weather.  Road and parking conditions prevented us from meeting nor were we able to conduct business or play. Roads had cleared enough for 6 members were able to attend Fontaine's 12th night.  I appreciate the crown for the generous awards that were given to our members that night.

A new website with current information about the shire was launched, and is now connected to the Kingdom pages and the webmaster's office.  A new email list was established for mass communication as well since Yahoo groups has been difficult. 

February 5 was Rio's first 2017 meeting; we tried a new format.  Everyone brought their own lunch; we had short reports; everyone worked on a project; heraldry consults were held all while we watched the indoor fighter practice.  The American Legion hall was very welcoming. Weather prevents outdoors fighter practice and archery.  



Upcoming events:

                  28-30 July ~ Defender of the Silver Pass

Scola Metallorum                                                Seneschal: Istvan

Returning from winter hiatus


Saint Golias                                                                    Seneschal: Bela Istvan

Upcoming events:

                 

Unser Hafen                                                                 Seneschal: Soren Thorvaldsson

We are looking forward to working with Aarquelle, as they transition to Barony, and will consider the future relationship between our groups as they have settled into their new status.

Words from our local Seneschals

                                                                                                            For the month of: December 2016

Aarquelle                                                                           Seneschal: Syr eErwyn y Teigr

December was a quiet month for Aarquelle.  Weather and holidays limited our practices, and in some cases our travels.  We held out annual holiday party, with over 50 people attending.  We are now gearing up for Viking Vinter Vunderlandt

Upcoming events:

                  14 January 2017 ~ Viking Vintr Vunderlandt

                  February ~ As You Like It

8 April 2017 ~ Kingdom Arts & Sciences Collegium

14-16 July 2017 ~ Highlands Rapier Camp and War Collegium

Al’Barran                                                                           Seneschal: Ymanya Murray

The December Populace meeting was cancelled, in favor of the al-Thing coinciding with Midwinter War Practice.  Midwinter went well, Shyla and her team put together a smooth and enjoyable event.  Many people pitched in to make the event successful, from planning, onsite and the amazing feast crew.

Mistress Melodia has been selected as the next Seneschal of al-Barrran.  I could not be more thrilled, both to work with her over the transition and to leave the office in her hands.  I could not have a better successor.  She is already working with the city, planning Ren Fair in earnest.

The financial committee has approved extending the al-Things, to see if they are supportable long term.

SPOTLIGHT:  I cannot thank Elisee enough for jumping in and taking over Midwinter feast, when the original feast coordinator could no longer do it.  It was especially awesome given that we didn’t have the kitchen.  Her whole crew was incredible.

Upcoming events:

                 

Blackwater Keep                                                  Seneschal: Devon

Not much has occurred during the holiday season.  We have continued to have monthly group meetings, A&S meetings and fighter practices.  We are planning on having a full day get-together, in late February or early March, to do some workshops and have fun.

Upcoming events:



Blaiddwyn                                                                        Seneschal: Mordygan MacGregor

Blaiddwyn is on winter hiatus.

Upcoming events:



Bryngalou                                                                                          Seneschal: Einarr Skallagrimmsson

Everything is positive!  We have motivated and involved member; good participation and input!

We had a relatively quiet month, with the holidays, but did find tme to get together to paint Shire banners.  Thank you to all who dedicated their time on the project.  We are looking at a way to hold more A&S classes, such as on a weekly or biweekly basis.  Shire members have volunteered already to teach several classes and set up sewing times to teach garb making.

St. Brigid’s Day feast is upcoming, and the whole Shire has dedicated much of their time and effort to get this event ready.

Upcoming events:

                  21 January 2017 ~ St. Brigid’s Day Celebration

Caer Galen                                                                       Seneschal: Keridwen Andersdottir

Midwinter 2016 was fantastic!

A 2017 planning session, and monthly meeting was held at Dwen’s house (complete with tacos and margaritas!) Keridwen will be running Caer Galen Defender, and Enduro will be run by Rowenna and Nico.  A Battlemoor land coorindator volunteered, Lady, Annabel, as well as acting as intermediary between the Battlemoor autocrat team and Caer Galen.  THL Shoshanna will be autocrat for Toys for Tots, in the fall.  We did some brainstorming on Midwinter 2017, considering a Mongolian theme.

Upcoming events:

                  7-9 July 2017 ~ Caer Galen Defender

                  28-30 July ~ Enduro

Caerthe                                                                                 Seneschal:



Upcoming events:

                  7 January 2017 ~ Twelfth Night

Citadel of the Southern Pass           Seneschal: Marco D’Este

The group is in a really healthy spot and continues to grow in overall attendance.  Our local brewery group continues to experiment with different types of drinks, we held an impressive candle making class that went very well and our Calyx Harmoniae impresses every time the Barony gets to hear their amazing voices.  We have openings for the officer positions of Rook Herald and Chronicler, the A&S officer change-over went really well.

The Citadel has been working hard to prepare for 12th Night; everything should be in order and ready to go.  Feast, Court and War Practice are well planned and good to go. 

SPOTLIGHT: Brandon Sivret has been working for over four months on arming the local populace with gear for Estrella War.  Out of his own kindness, he has helped to produce three full kits and continues to produce even more.  He has also produced several crossbows, so we should see more bolts in the air this year.  He has been taking time out of his life to teach people that it is not impossible to get out on the field. 

Upcoming events:

                  21-22 January 2017 ~ Twelfth Night and War Practice

Draca Mor                                                                                 Seneschal: Saeunn

Our Yule Celebration was held in December.  A site has been found for The Mor You Know, and A&S event, tentatively planned for 22-23 April.  Plans are being made for a demonstration at a local Renaissance Faire in May.  A site for STAG is being investigated, and is planned to occur in late summer.  We are continuing to plan for two Kingdom level events, to occur in 2017.  Local A&S classes are being scheduled for the new year.

Upcoming events:

                  22-23 April ~ The Mor You Know

Dragonsspine                                                            Seneschal: Mary of Lyonshall

The Barony is doing well.  We are looking forward to the upcoming events (Candlemas, Carnival and Coronation) and a good 2017.  We have selected an autocrat team for Carnival of Venice and the event is moving forward. 

Fighter practice is well attended, with a few new fighters.  Mistress Lydia is working on new classes and projects for A&S.  Letters are being accepted for the Chronicler office. 

Upcoming events:

                  28 January 2017 ~ Candlemas

                  1 April ~ Carnival of Venice

                  6 May 2017 ~ Coronation

Drygestan                                                                                           Seneschal: Christine Woyade

It has been a quiet holiday season, kicked off by a very productive populace meeting.  We decided on 2017 events, and solicited bids.  We plan to support Bryngolau’s St. Brigid’s Day Feast, instead of hosting a separate Yule.  We are planning to host several events this year, including Ren Faire, ComiCon and Drystone with the Company of St Martin.

Upcoming events:



Fontaine dans Sable                                       Seneschal: Adriana Lopes de Rodas

December was an uneventful month for Fontaine, after a successful demo at the Farmington Public Library on 5 December.  Wednesday Medieval Muster continues to be well attended with Rapier and A&S participants.  We hope to see more heavy fighters in the upcoming weeks, before War.

The barony has a new Baronial Scribe, THL Anna Katherine and Mistress Elizabeth has agreed to become Deputy Seneschal.  Letters of intent to poll as the next Coronet of Fontaine are being accepted until 31 January.

Upcoming events:

14 January 2017 ~ Twelfth Night and War practice

11 March 2017 ~ Crown Tournament

22 April 2017 ~ Sworded Affaire

Gleann Medonach                                              Seneschal:



Upcoming events:



Hawk’s Hollow                                                         Seneschal: Grellan O'Conchobhair

We have slowed during these winter months, with archery ongoing, and preparations for Caerthan 12th Night.  The new A&S officer is leading brainstorming discussions on an “A&S sweatshop” to create largesse for the Crown.  We are also looking at running an event, other than St. Sebastian’s, and have begun idea formation.

Upcoming events:



Hinterland                                                                       Seneschal:



Upcoming events:



Nahrun Kabirun                                                    Seneschal: Heinric Von Drachenburg

The Shire is in a great place right now, with the addition of 7 new people in December.  Students will be back from winter break in about two weeks.  We are holding regular, weekly, events attended by 35-40 people.  Fighter practice alone included visitors from other groups, and several first time fighters.  The weekly armor workshop night is still going strong; despite the cooling of the weather (I bet you CO people think that is funny!)

We have revived the City of Rocks event and planning is currently underway.  We have also selected a date for the masked ball, tentatively 20 May. 

The office of Seneschal is open to letters of intent, as I step down.  I am very confident in the officers, and my deputy, that the Shire is well suited to the transition.

SPOTLIGHT:  Big round of huzzahs to my deputy Seneschal Seamus, who gives sage advice and listens well, when people wish to scream.

Upcoming events:

31 March 2017 ~ Siege of the City (City of Rocks state park)

20 May ~ Masked Ball

                  11-12 November 2017 ~ Coronation

Greetings unto the most kind and generous populace of the Outlands,

It is with a heavy heart that We received words of tragedy that befell a young member of An Tir. Her name is Naomi of Wealdsmere and she is 9 years of age.  At a recent event, this young lady became injured when her dress caught on fire and she is currently being treated at the Shriners Children's Hospital in Sacramento.

Her Majesty and I were approached by a good gentle of An Tir and were asked to send her a letter to keep her in good spirits. Knowing the astounding generosity of the Mighty Outlands, We believe that We can do much better than one letter. We would ask all who are able, to please write some kind words to this young lady so that we may lift her spirits during this time. Please send your letters to Our Disaster Relief Coordinator, Baroness Isabel Benet, so that she may collect them and we can send a care package to this young lady. Baroness Isabel’s address is 14704 E 26th Way. Aurora CO 80011.

Thank you all for your generosity.
King Kolgrimr and Queen Danielle

Hail good populace of the Outlands! King Kolgrimr and Queen Danielle send kind greetings!

Defender of the Silver Pass: Laurel

Crown Tournament: All orders

Battlemoor: All orders 

In service to the Dream,
King Kolgrimr and Queen Danielle
The SCA, Kingdom of the Outlands recognizes that there are conditions that require the management of excessive noise/sound levels at events. Carbide noisemakers, which are made to resemble period black powder cannons, are a common source of noise at events. Although the use of these devices have no apparent or immediate impact on the health and well-being of the general populace, it has been deemed necessary to enact procedures and guidelines for the use of these devices in order to provide comfort and peace of mind for those attending SCA events.. These procedures are to include setting established times the devices may be used, advanced notification of their use, and any other specific procedures deemed necessary by the autocrat or local group hosting the SCA event.

Minimum rules on carbide noisemaker use at all official SCA events in the Outlands are as follows:

❖ Operation of devices may only occur between 10:00 am and 10:00 pm.

❖ Carbide noisemakers may not be used during court except with specific dispensations from the Crown or Baronial Coronet hosting the Court.

❖ Only one device may be fired at a time, with at least 1 minute between each concurrent device being fired.

❖ No more than 4 total activations in any hour per camp.

❖ Carbide noisemakers may not be fired closer than 50 feet from any other adjacent camp without express permission from the owners of that camp.

❖ Whenever possible, point carbide noisemakers away from other camp areas, toward the outskirts of the site.

❖ Carbide noisemakers may not be fired next to a road or path that is used.

❖ Verbal warning must be issued before carbide noisemakers are fired, e.g., “fire in the hole”

These rules are meant as a minimum set of standards. Stricter rules, up to and including a total restriction of the use of carbide noisemakers, may be set and enforced based on specific site needs or the preferences of event staff. Any person or camp who refuses to comply with policies may be asked to leave at event staff’s request. These rules apply only to carbide noisemakers; black powder cannons are strictly forbidden at any event.
I am sure you have all seen the growing wildfires in the western portion of the county. We are getting reports from the Kingdom Disaster Relief Coordinators in that area, and are keeping an eye out for issues. Currently we have reports that we do have SCA members who have lost their homes. Please stay tuned for ways we can help.

In our own beloved Kingdom, we have a couple of small wildfires, with no members affected.
Most of the Kingdom is under an EXTREME fire danger alert. Dry, hot, windy conditions are the culprit, with an abundance of undergrowth from the wet spring. We have been relatively fire free this season, but our secondary fire season has just begun.

Now might be a good time to put some mitigation practices in place, if you have not already done so. Here is a link to help you get started:

Keep an eye on the Kingdom pages, both official and unofficial for more updates as the situation develops.

Greetings from Sir Lavan Longwalker, Kingdom Seneschal.

I have noticed, since Crown Tournament, somewhat of a loss of understanding in the use of the correct title for the Crown Prince and Crown Princess. The Outlands Crown Prince and Crown Princess are titled “Your Royal Highness.” Too often I have heard “Your Highness.” This is the title for a Prince (one that serves the Crown ruling a Principality), not a Crown Prince (heir to the Throne of a Kingdom). For example: The Prince of the Mists of The West Kingdom would be “Your Highness” the Crown Prince of the Outlands should be “Your Royal Highness.” For the future, I ask all to remember this for our future Crown Prince and Crown Princess.

I am proud to announce that Baroness Somisawhel de Sousa will be taking the reins of Kingdom Seneschal at Coronation. She has served this past year as Southern Deputy Seneschal and will do a great job serving the Kingdom as a whole. I wish her well in this humbling endeavor.

I also wish to give thanks to those who have served with me as a kingdom officer and group officer. Their efforts have made the Kingdom what it is today, and their service helped set the tone for the future of this wonderful Kingdom. Thank you for your service to the Outlands!

I want to especially thank the Kingdom Seneschal Team: Duke Bela Kos, Jarl Gunwaldt Gullbjorn and Baroness Somisawhel de Sousa. Their excellent support, guidance and steadfast work made my job so much easier. I am proud to have served with these individuals as part of a team whose goal was to help make the Kingdom a better place. This teamwork made serving the Outlands a true joy!

With that, I bid you all enjoy these coming days of Fall and, as always, be safe.

Uffda!
Lavan
